Mariakis Survives

Michael Mariakis

Wai Kin Wong jump-started the action when he bet a healthy 30,000 into the pot pre-flop. Makoto Yoshimichi then made a two-bet of his own as action went to Michael, who was covered by both players and decided to go all-in with his last 59,000. Action went back to Wong, who added another 30,000 to make the call.


Wong checked while Makoto shoved all in. Wong folded and we ended up with a Yosimichi vs. Mariakis showdown.

Mariakis: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}
Yosimichi: {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

The turn {7-Spades} and river {6-Diamonds} was of no use to Yoshimichi's lower pair as Mariakis survived with his pair of kings and added some 100,000 chips to his stack.
